    Sonic Mania Plus adds more to a game that was already perfect.

    Sonic Mania was already a fantastic title, and Sonic Mania Plus only makes things look and feel better.

    Somehow, Sega, Christian Whitehead, and the development teams behind the original Sonic Mania have found a way to make the best Sonic game in years even better. Sonic Mania Plus is now nearly everything it could and should be, with new playable characters, modes, options, and polish sure to please fans. There’s a small handful of areas in which the game could still be improved, but really, this is just about as good of a Sonic adventure as we could ever have hoped for.

    There's enough new content to digest, and the art book is pretty great, even if it's just a little trinket. Now... how long do we have to wait for a proper sequel?

    Sonic Mania Plus almost perfectly encapsulates what made the original Sega Genesis and CD games so much fun while updating the style so that it feels fresh and new.

    Essential for those who he did not play the original title.

    It adds on neatly onto your original game (no need to start all over), and will extend your playtime at least another few hours if not more. Also, if you missed Sonic Mania last year, this is now the definitive version of the game. That said, if you just casually picked it up, and only invested a few hours, there isn’t that much here in Sonic Mania Plus to justify spending more money unless you’re a huge fan of Mighty and Ray.

    The quality of the package in Mania Plus is so good that it is becoming one of the best, if not the best, Sonic game of all time.

    While Not the Squeal that we were hoping for, Mania Plus is a perfect reason for players to get back into Mania, Not only the ability to playWhile Not the Squeal that we were hoping for, Mania Plus is a perfect reason for players to get back into Mania, Not only the ability to play as Mighty and Ray Amazing since we haven't seen them in forever, but the DLC improve upon almost every aspect from Level Transitions, 2 Player Modes and the ability to play the levels from Mania but with Slightly New Level Design and for a few bucks buy yourself a physical copy the Box Art and the Art Book are Awesome, if your a Sonic Fan start playing Mania Again Because it just got 100 times better.
